Marietta Cellars “Christo” Red Blend

This red blend from Sonoma’s Marietta Cellars is a deep, inky Syrah-based blend.  Robust and full-bodied tannins frame dark fruit flavors of black fig, blackberry, baked blueberry, and mulberry that have just the right hint of smokiness and spice.  This winery not only blends grape varieties, but also blend vintages.  This unique feature gives some of the benefits and complexities of aging wine before it even leaves the winery!  Syrah, Petite Sirah, Grenache, Viognier.  A must-have with any steak or grilled lamb chops!

St. Roch Rosé

This DRY rosé comes from one of our favorite areas in France, the Loire Valley.  Light-bodied and super refreshing, this is the ultimate patio wine on a warm day!  This is a perennial staff favorite, with flavors of fresh lime, tart cherry, and wild strawberry.  For those unfamiliar with the style, these dry wines are great for fans of Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio!


Colossal Reserva Portuguese Red Blend

Portugal is a real up-and-comer among wine lovers, especially with their well-made, value-priced red wines.  This blend is composed of varieties like Touriga Nacional, Syrah, Tinta Roriz, and Alicante Bouschet, which yield a wine with ripe, smooth tannins and ripe berry flavors of baked blackberry and raspberry with a nice floral and spice accent!

Bodegas Ego “El Gorú” Spanish Red Blend

This blend features exotic grape varieties like Monastrell, Syrah, and Petit Verdot.  Medium-bodied with a nice smokiness and spice note imparted from both the Syrah and Petit Verdot, this wine is a great match for barbeque or beef fajitas!


El Miracle Garnacha

Garnacha is one of Spain’s better-known grape varieties and easy to like with its black cherry and raspberry flavors.  This is another great wine with barbeque, but also works well with beef stir fry dishes, weekend burgers, or Cajun-seasoned pork chops.

Tussock Jumper Pinot Noir

An easy-drinker with light tannins and bright strawberry and tart cherry flavors.  This wine is great with salmon, mushroom pizza, and barbequed pork ribs.
